Editor’s note: The outbreak is growing despite efforts to stop it. Is MERS headed our way?
Via The London Express:
MORE than 900 schools have been closed in South Korea to prevent the spread of the deadly ‘camel flu’ virus, as more than 1,000 people have been locked under quarantine.
The Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus, also known as ‘camel flu’, has so far claimed the lives of two people in South Korea and forced more than 1,300 into quarantine as a fresh outbreak continues to circulate in the Middle East – with travellers carrying it to other parts of the world.
As a matter of drastic action, it was announced today by South Korea’s eduction ministry that more than 900 schools have been shut to help boost the desperate preventative measures put in place.
The spread of the virus took the Asian country by surprise when the first case of the latest outbreak was reported on May 20.
